Importing a Management Pack in System Center Operations Manager fails if a dependent management pack isn't imported

Applies to: System Center 2016 Operations ManagerSystem Center 2012 R2 Operations ManagerMicrosoft System Center 2012 Operations Manager More

Summary


When importing a management pack in System Center Operations Manager that has a dependency on another management pack, the import may fail with the following message:

<ManagementPackName> could not be imported.

If any management packs in the Import list are dependent on this management pack, the installation of the dependent management packs will fail.
The requested management pack was invalid. See inner exception for details.
Parameter name: managementPack

More Information


This issue occurs because a management pack that the management pack being imported depends on isn't imported in the management group. In order to work around this problem, import the dependent management packs first then import the management packs that depend on them. 

NOTE If you're unsure of the dependencies for a management pack, they will be listed in the management pack guide.
